According to reports, the European duo wants to sign a Rangers forward one year after Ibrox's arriva ...

Celta Vigo and Real Sociedad have both reportedly approached Rangers for acquiring Fashion Sakala on loan, with the La Liga duo interested in signing the Zambian international for the season.

According to Football Scotland, the Spanish pair is keen to sign Sakala on loan, despite the striker signing for Rangers just one year ago, although the 25-year-old did struggle in his first season in the Scottish Premiership, with the attacker suffering with injury problems and inconsistent form.

Sakalas first season at Ibrox was somewhat subpar, and now clubs are lining up to loan the Rangers forward, but according to reports, the former Oostende player is eager to stay in Glasgow and fight for his place in the Giovanni van Bronckhorsts team.

Sakala scored 12 goals and seven assists in all competitions last season for the Rangers, and with the striker only making 15 starts, there's a lot of room for the attacker to develop as a player, especially if the Bears lose another key player in the forward line.

Alfredo Morelos' future is once again up in the air, and Sakala might become the club's main striker if the Colombian international leaves Rangers this summer, giving him a good possibility of becoming the SPL giants' lead player in the coming season.

Sakala has demonstrated his ability whenever given the chance to play for Rangers, and his first year in Scotland would have given him the experience necessary to not only adapt to the league, but also to adapt to Van Bronckhorsts' style of play, which might suit the 25-year-old.

Sakala has every right to decline loan interest and fight for Rangers' place.

Sakala was one of Rangers' most exciting signings last summer, and the decision to loan him out after one year feels somewhat premature from the Scottish club, especially since the forward is confident in his ability to start in the starting XI next season.

Rangers need all the quality they can get, especially after a time when two of their key players have gone, and Sakala might relish in the opportunity to prove doubters from last season.
